The Bulk-Fill Technique with Composites
The importance of direct composite-based filling materials will continue to grow in the future. It involves scientifically substantiated and documented, high-quality permanent restorations for the masticatory loaded posterior region. The results of a comprehensive review have shown that the annual failure rates do not differ statistically from those of amalgam fillings. The increasing economic pressure in the health system and in many cases the insufficient financial possibilities of patients to meet performance-based fee payments also require a more simple, quicker-to-produce and therefore more cost-effective standard restoration as well as time-consuming high-end restorations. In addition to hybrid composites, available in different hues and opacity graduations, bulk-fill composite materials, particularly for the posterior region, have been on the market for some time now. These can be used for placing clinically and aesthetically acceptable posterior fillings in a more economical procedure than traditional hybrid composites. However, composite-based standard restorations will not be completely without additional private payment; though the time benefit associated with the fast-track technique can reduce this accordingly.
